The mission of the Palomar College Mathematics Department is to provide an environment where a diverse student body can learn and become competent users of mathematics and mathematical applications. Moreover, the department will contribute to the development of students as mathematical thinkers, to continue to grow in their chosen professions, and to be successful after transferring to a college or university.

In pursuing this mission, primary departmental functions are the development, dissemination, and application of mathematical knowledge in the areas of mathematics and statistics. We will serve students who are STEM majors and minors, general education students, at both basic skills and transfer levels.

In fulfilling this mission, the department creates an environment where the faculty can continue to grow as teachers and scholars while providing public and professional service.

We offer courses that meet face-to-face, online, as well as in the hybrid format. Our faculty employ a range of teaching styles and technologies to meet the needs of our students.  We offer a variety of pathways for students to achieve their educational goals.
